never ben prouder of your and your leadership than the day that happened and america owes you a grateful thanks for leading the charge and giving voice to that problem. but leonard's courage and heroism just doesn't apply to his service to his country, not long ago when an intruder attacked his home and his family, leonard was there to stand up and protect them as well. and you shrug it off, leonard, but everybody who knows you knows that the outcome of that horrible moment was inevitable. that truth and justice were going to triumph because you were the one who was there at the right time and the right place. we are honored to have the privilege of serving with you. we wish you and dodi and your entire family the best. don't be a stranger. we are counting on you to continue to inspire us and may god go with you. >> i'd like to now recognize the representative from northern missouri, mr. graves. mr. graves: thank you very much. mr. speaker, i rise to recognize the distinguished service of my neighbor to the north, congressman leonard boswell. and was just pointed out, he was born in miss
of america shared in that growth. by making education affordable, by fostering innovation and job creation, and providing economic security to retirees through medicare and social security, our country went from a paralyzing great depression to an economic superpower. we were able to accomplish such a drastic transformation because we were willing to consider revenue as a way to invest in the future, as a way to promise security to our seniors -- economic security to our seniors. focusing spending on policies that work and balancing revenue is at the core of this debate. i've made tough choices in the 1990's that balance the budget, generated a surplus and supported robust job creation. in january of 1993, unemployment stood at 7.3%. in january 2001, that rate had been reduced to 3.9%. that period of record growth also saw an important decline in the poverty rate. in 1993, 15.1% of americans were in poverty. but thanks to job growth and an expanding economy, based upon a balanced approach to deficit reduction, including revenue and targeted reduction in expenditures, poverty fell to 11.3%
of a testament to america's shipbuilding prowess. they are a critical tool for the united states, for our economic security and national security when it documents arctic. you see the ice breakers mean jobs to washington state and that's why in this final package the importance of these ships, these ice breakers, the polar sea was in danger of being scrapped. there is no denying that we need to build a new icebreaker fleet for the future and for our navy arctic mission. but these specialized vessels will take up to ten years to build. so in the meantime, we want to make sure that u.s. companies can continue to do business and keep the arctic operational and running, and so it's very fitting that the icebreakers that work fine now are not dismantled. so this legislation prevents them from being scrapped and helps us have the resources that we need to serve interests in the arctic. this bill stipulates that we won't junk our current icebreakers, and it's more cost-effective to keep them, and it will make sure that they stay seaworthy so that the crews don't go out on faulty equipment. these

square-mile city there,. we are one of the most densely populated cities in america, more than new york city. we rank no. 1 in per-capita use of public transportation. we are a vibrant community filled with boutiques, restaurants, and cafes. hurricane sandy was devastating. the hudson river spilled into hoboken from both the north and the south. more than half of the city was flooded. three of the four firehouses and more than 7000 homes were flooded. we estimate the total damage at well over $100 million. thankfully, our main street did not flood and is open for business. even the businesses that did not flood have been severely impacted by one of our principal means of transportation to new york. the train has been flooded and still has not been restored. this is due to the difficulty of getting to and from the city. some were forced to operate at an alternate location as they tried to navigate the insurance got lead. the national flood insurance program is not designed to meet the needs of the urban environment. there is a fundamental unfairness that i respectfully ask congress to tr

opportunity to write the next chapter in america and america's exceptional story, but we must always remember that nothing is given. america's greatness must continue to be earned. our nation has built generation by generation through hard work and resiliencey of the american people and our generation must do our part to live up to this awesome responsibility. we must be a country that stands for freedom and liberty, economic growth and opportunity for every american and i remain optimistic that we can continue to make this country even better if we stay committed to these principles. mr. speaker, i want to thank the people of the 10th district for the opportunity and honor to represent them in the united states congress. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back the balance of his time. under the speaker's announced policy of january 5, 2011, the chair recognizes the gentleman from georgia, mr. johnson, for 30 minutes. mr. johnson: thank you, mr. speaker. mr. speaker, i was thinking to myself earlier this day, what happens when you put in a cage fight a giant in with a midget where

this problem. >> don't even think about raising medicare age. we are not throwing america's seniors over the cliff to give a tax cut for the wealthiest people in america. >> the president is not going to stop spending. he is proposed -- >> senator -- >> more spending. so it's hard to work with someone who i think is intentionally trying to take us over this cliff. >> he is prepared to negotiate but it is not a tenable position to say that the tax cuts for the wealthy should be made permanent. it is not gonna happen. >> as for future talks between the president and house speaker bain per, so far, none are planned and all of this comes as our new nbc news/wall street journal poll shows 70% of democrats and 59% of republicans want their party's leaders to come to an agreement, even if it means not sticking to long-held position on taxes and entitlements. joining me now, democratic congresswoman gwen moore of wisconsin, a member of the house budget committee. thanks for joining me. >> thanks for having me, tam rochblt. >> we got word from aides, speaker boehner, going to ohio tomorrow, wheth

of america. every time you come to this floor it's a question, why are we here? we are here to do the people's work. let's sit down. get it done. and move forward. instead of filling the agenda however worthy some of those initiatives may be, instead of not along with passing a middle income tax -- th is also reminiscent of a year ago. the president proposed, the house and senate, democrats and repuicans, voted for the payroll tax holiday. the republicans in the house resisted. painted themselves into a corner until they had no choice. the issue had been made too hot for them to handle and they finally had to come around to supporting the payroll tax holiday. and here we are again. 100% of the american people will receive a tax cut when we pass the middle income tax cut. the wealthiest people in our country will receive a tax cut up to their income of $250,000. we are asking them to pay a little bit more for what they make over $250,000 a year. to help reduce the deficit, to help grow the economy, grow the economy. that growth is what is essential. you want to reduce the dicit, create jobs.

-- the top 2% of earners in america are not going to have their tax cuts extended. >> the two sides have been swapping proposals this week but insiders say they didn't view the last white house plan as a serious counteroffer so they resent their original proposal to the president. the problem isn't just there's a big gulf between the two sides, they don't understand how to negotiate with each other. you'd think they might have figured out how to communicate. that hasn't happened. correctly fearing the republicans were insulted by that offer, the phone call the president had with boehner on tuesday night was an attempt to save the talks and assure boehner that the white house wasn't trying to be insulting with their offer and it was a tense conversation. so when it comes to the sticking point, the president has a big edge on this as far as the public is concerned, particularly on taxes and in our poll 76% said they'd be willing to accept higher rates on the wealthy, including 61% of republicans and it was tax rates. that's what we asked in our question, folks. perhaps trying to be sure they do

it the way america said they want it to be done. they've been well-educated. not that other well educated people have not been subjected to vicious recriminations, but there's a resonant theme here about highly intelligent black people and some unconscious refusal to acknowledge their legitimacy. i mean, the questioning of especially president obama's intelligence and susan rice's intelligence resonates very powerfully here and as jonathan halter did, i could give you history after history after history of the cases in which african-american people of prominence have been questioned, brought to the bar of public concern as to the legitimacy of their intelligence and yet all along proving they are more than superior to those who oppose them. >> wasn't the problem here additionally made more difficult after david petraeus went before the committee and said, terrorism was involved and appeared to contradict what susan rice had said, and at that point her position became more difficult, didn't it? >> and unten beableuntenable. >> it was difficult all along. and there was a good chance all alo
of constitutionality, the integrity of the government, the balance of powers. we're standing up for america. i mean, you could build a heck of a story saying you're going to defie an imperial president with his -- spit while you say it, ultimate mate -- ultimatum. >> the republicans can say we came up with the compromise. we did the thing we didn't want to do offering tax increases, whether it's deduction closing or rate hikes, so the republicans have clearly moved, and i think that somehow they got to show that to the public and that it is spending that the democrats will not come back with. >> one other issues neither side talked about, the central issue in america, jobs, growth, stimulating a more abun adapt -- abundant economy. bottom line, both sides missed it. lou: missed it, and frankly, an introduction to a head wind of $260 billion taxes because of obamacare, and then the fiscal cliff. susan, thank you very much. we appreciate it, michael. thank you, doug. great to have you with us. now for your comments,

,000 is not rich in america today. the question will come down to what you get into return? i like to think of it as small claims court. if everyone goes away happy, the deal is probably good. speaker boehner was probably conciliatory. now it is up to the president to come and talk about spending cuts he is willing to make. >> the american people want those now. i think that we are all just ready to say let's do something. we don't care what it is anymore. we just want resolutions. we have a good deal here. a bad deal can be really bad and we will be stuck with it for a long time. >> absolutely. if the deal is bad for america, it is not for everyone. it is bad for the world. the markets are now waiting for a decision to be made. it could be bad for the marketplace. we have to make decisions on entitlement and spending and the real cost of our economic rows. in january, we have to be talking about raising the debt ceiling. the one you said it, spending and is our problem. we have so many obligations that there is no room for error anymore. these obligations need to be part of the process. >>
, pressure for a deal intensified. jamie dimon, head of america's largest bank bias sets, jpmorgan chase, and a big wall street player, said lawmakers have to see the bigger picture. >> they know all the cards right now. you can lay them out, you can debate them all day long. everyone knows what they are. now they have got to go decide. if they go decide now, you might have a booming economy in a couple months. >> reporter: one part of the fiscal cliff drama is across-the-board government spending cuts. today every member of the house received a letter ordering them to impose 11% across the board cuts to their own budget. john boehner will meet with reporters in a couple of hours and president obama will do some interviews with stations across the country. >> also in washington is republican senator jim demint of south carolina. senator, good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> senator, what do you think is going to happen? >> i wish i knew. most of us here are not in the loop of what they're discussing. but i do know this, that this government doesn't need more money, this country nee
